Salt River Sauvignon, Duncan Savage, 2023
Salt River Sauvignon, Duncan Savage, 2023, Duncan Savage
This one of our favourite whites from South Africa. It really focusses on the grapefruit and mineral side of sauvignon its elegant, finessed and ultimately incredibly drinkable. Great value here - it drinks like a Sancerre at double the price.
Duncan Savage makes stunning wines in and around the coastal regions of Capetown. He focusses on vineyards with Granite soils, and maritime influence, meaning the wines always have a purity and finesse that is such a hallmark of his wines.
The fruit here is sourced from a 35 year old vineyard in Stellenbosch and aged in a mixture of concrete eggs, stainless steel and barrels which gives the palate an interesting breadth, not normally apparent in Sauvignon Blanc.
Great service and excellent wines
Excellent service and excellent wines. I wanted a selection of six wines and asked Peckham Cellars to make the choice for me based on a price range. The wines were all superb and unique in that they were from small suppliers that I personally would have no knowledge of. If you want something different at your next dinner / party then I can't recommend these guys enough.
Super-speedy delivery! My wines arrived safe and sound in fully recyclable packaging. A real bonus. Website has such a great selection it was hard to choose.
I placed my order online from…Melbourne
I placed my order online from Melbourne Australia and the delivery of my birthday gift to a friend in London happened smoothly, quickly and well presented. Big thanks to the team at Peckham Cellars
Nice wine. Easy and efficient
Great for sending to friends as gifts/congratulations. You can include a message with the wine, so ideal really. Fun range of interesting wines.
